Community Health and Morbidity Clinic near Manipal, India. IHP students reach Malpe!

On our third week in Manipal, we had the opportunity to attend a community health clinic design for second year BSc students. The professors assigned two different families to each student; within the next few weeks, the students have to interview  patients, gather both subjective and objective data, and then create a plan of care. We tagged along with some of the students, and gathered some information for our scholarly projects. Leah Rubin RN-NP student ’14 and Kristen Palleo RN-NP student 14′ had the opportunity to interview a pregnant nurse and gather information about pre-natal care. Diane Hazel RN-NP student 14′ had the opportunity to interview and gather data on two children and ask questions about vaccination routines and daily food intake. I had the opportunity to interview adults with hypertension (HTN)  and diabetes. I took blood pressures and also concentrated on diabetes and HTN education and medication. Here are some of the pictures from our Community health days in Malpe.
